Texas Police Blotter: Drunk Man “Running from Chupacabra”

February 15, 2010

From Taylor County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. John Cummins:

02/07 12:48 AM – Prowler reported at a residence in Hamby. The caller stated an unknown man entered the residence twice, and was told to leave both times. As an officer was driving toward the Calling Party’s residence, a man on the side of the road yelled at him to “keep going,” and pointed toward Interstate 20. The 24 year-old Abilene resident was found to be intoxicated. He told officers he went into the caller’s residence to wait for a friend, and was found on the side of the road because he was “running from a chupacabra.” The victim did not wish to file charges. The subject was arrested for Public Intoxication and transported to the Taylor County Jail.

No drunk chupacabra were reported.
